I believe that creating and building containers and spaces rooted in safety helps everyone be more creative, innovative, and comfortable taking strategic risks that yield positive outcomes. It's why I center my leadership around empathy and empowerment. I establish goals that sit at the intersection of the individual goals of team members, the business priorities of an organization, and the communities that will be impacted by those spaces, to help team members feel a sense of ownership over the outcomes, and a clear pathway to see their work product evolve and receive fair recognition of that effort. I focus on acquiring the resources to help my team do their best work healthily, remaining attentive to conditions or expectations that may perpetuate feelings of overwhelm or burnout. As a leader, I aim to be a persistent advocate, determined planner, and consistent amplifier.
